I am creating a growing branch that will grow into my daughters name similar to the video tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdEAx3SbFaw
The video tutorial shows how the tapered branch grows. After it grows, I want it to get fat in some areas, but not all. I was hoping to control the tapered width at different areas but the tutorial says to use the bevel object as the taper object in order to achieve a animated growing while extruding effect. Once it grows to the length I want, then I want to change the diameter at different areas.
Currently I can only get a straight taper with the setting set to taper object.
